Happy Tuesday my friends! Today I have a sweet treat for you-CACAO Atlanta, an international luxury chocolate brand known for its exquisite, origin-driven chocolate and confections, has officially opened its flagship store, CACAO Buckhead. Located within the prestigious The Shops Buckhead Atlanta community, the high-end retail boutique serves as a beacon of CACAO’s reality to redefine superior quality in the luxury chocolate sector.
”We are thrilled to introduce an unprecedented retail concept to Atlanta’s elite connoisseurs and culinary enthusiasts,” said CACAO founder and owner Kristen Hard. “CACAO Buckhead introduces a dynamic luxury space at the intersection of rare chocolate selections, fine wine and artistic expression.”
CACAO’s new flagship location in The Shops Buckhead Atlanta exudes true luxury with every detail, from the chocolate to the ambiance. CACAO Buckhead’s high-end retail and setting captivates the most discerning customers with a one-of-a-kind experience comparable to the world’s most renowned luxury brands.
As a vogue accessory of luxury retail concepts, CACAO Buckhead features limited-release collections of exquisite, hand-crafted chocolate with impeccable quality. Its ongoing artist collaborations, exclusive to CACAO Buckhead, bring the world of art, chocolate maker and chocolatier into conceptual installations. The current collaboration with NG Collective Studio represents a conversation in art, translated by sister artists Kristen Giorgi and Laura Naples’ signature style using chocolate as their medium, and the flavors and colors of Italy as their muse. In 2016, CACAO will introduce exclusive collaborations with artists such as David Baerwalde, Kevin Archer and Valerio Beruti.
Another unique component of CACAO Buckhead is the company’s first-ever wine room. This feature entices guests to discover the similarities of fine wine and chocolate, both in origin and flavor profiles. Wines from CACAO’s curated selection are available for purchase. CACAO’s experts also offer pairing suggestions with its chocolates.
I had the pleasure of visiting this beautiful boutique last week. It was absolutely stunning! I even got to try various pieces of the luxurious chocolate. My favorite was the chocolate salame di cioccolato, a twist on the traditional Italian confection. The salame is 60 percent bean-to-bar chocolate rolled with shortbread and amaretti cookies.
Make sure you stop by the new shop and pick out a decadent piece of chocolate!
